Something is Missing....

I'm sitting here watching "Singin' in the Rain" on TMC, and it occurs to me that there isn't a movie that quite captures the radical changes that have occurred with technology, the watershed moment like "talking pictures" were for a whole generation.

Sure, movies incorporate technology, but there hasn't been quite the, what's the word...reflexive movie. Not that anyone could make such a movie on par with "Singin' in the Rain" but it would be interesting to see. There isn't a 20th or 21st Century Gene Kelly.

How would you make the 21st Century equivalent to "Singin' in the Rain"?
